5 Important things to Consider Before Getting your Eyebrows Microbladed
If you're considering getting your eyebrows microbladed, there are a few particulars you should know first. Microblading is a form of semi-permanent tattooing that can give you the well-defined brows of your dreams—but it's not right for everyone. Here's what you need to know before making the decision to get microbladed eyebrows.
1. Microblading is not permanent. Microblading is a popular eyebrow shaping method that uses a small, hand-held tool to deposit pigment into the skin. Unlike traditional tattoos, microblading is not permanent. The ink is placed surface-level and will eventually fade over time. Most microbladed brows will last for 1-3 years before they start to lose their color and shape. While this may seem like a lot of upkeep, it's actually less frequent than most other eyebrow management options. For example, if you wax, laminate, or thread your eyebrows, you're typically required to do so every 3-4 weeks. With microblading, you only need to get touch-ups every 12-18 months. So if you're looking for an option that will save you time (and money) in the long run, microblading may be the way to go!
2. There is a healing process. After getting your eyebrows microbladed, you'll need to follow aftercare instructions carefully for the first week or so while your brows heal. This usually means keeping them clean and dry and avoiding makeup and other products near the area.
Keeping irritants out of the application area is a vital part of the healing process, to minimize any risk of infection. It is important to get to know your aftercare instructions. While aftercare can vary between eyebrow products, Head over to our general aftercare instructions to best care for your brows.
3. It's not painless. Many people report feeling only minor discomfort during the microblading process, but it is a form of tattooing after all—so expect a minor level of the discomfort that you may feel during a tattooing process. Micro-blading is considered a semi-permanent tattoo because the needle does not go as deep as it would for a regular tattoo.
4. Results can vary. Microblading gives you natural-looking brows, but everyone's skin heals differently so there is some variability in results. Be sure to do your research and consult our qualified technicians for beautiful results you can trust. See our Instagram for examples of the work Sugar by Jennifer has created.
